KOCE-TV becomes PBS SoCal – Southern California’s primary PBS station

PBS SoCal (formerly KOCE-TV) is PBS’s flagship station in Los Angeles, Calif. A $500,000 revolving line of credit loan from the Public Radio Fund provides working capital to assist PBS SoCal as it expands its services. Currently, PBS SoCal is building a new studio in its building to expand programming capabilities. In February 2011, they added the WORLD Channel to their multiple viewing platforms, which features the best of public television’s nonfiction, documentary and public affairs programming, such as Nova, Frontline, Independent Lens and PBS NewsHour.
